Stay connected with students and instructors through Blackboard messages

Blackboard offers a messaging system as a helpful resource to communicate with your instructor and other course classmates. 

Step 1

Access the messages sent and received in a particular course by selecting them through the Messages section in the Navigation Menu. 

You can also access the messages window inside the course through the Messages tab. 

Step 2

Click on the message to check its content. If the sender has allowed it, you can also reply to the message in the same conversation. 

How to send a new message

Step 1

From the Messages tab on the course page, click on New Message. 

Step 2

On the message screen, you need to select at least one recipient. You can message a specific instructor, classmate, or all the instructors on the course you selected. When you are done writing, click the Send button at the bottom of the page. 

Note: You can also select an instructor you want to message directly from the Course Content tab.
